Le Garçon Aux Oiseaux

Paris, France

 I took this shot at La Place du Carrousel as I walked from the Louvre to the Tuileries Garden. While other children were having fun chasing away the pigeons this boy seemed to be in deep contemplative thought. His gaze was striking and I wondered what he was thinking about.

Vladimir Pinta The Music Man

Prague, Czech Republic

I saw him in Prague in 2009 and in 2013. I think he is about eighty years old and he sings, dances and plays several instruments.  You can see him and hear his music on You Tube.

Le Café

Paris, France

It will probably be a long time before I go to Paris again but at least I have pictures and good memories.

Welcome to the Land of Plenty

Philadelphia, Pa

After I took his picture, the man said "You took my picture while I was eating?" and I said, "Yes, that's right." Then he smiled and said, "I think it will be a funny picture" and I replied, "That's what I was thinking."

Kind of Blue

 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

When I was trying to think of a title for this post I was listening to Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue'' album, so voilà, Kind of Blue.

Chestnut Street

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I love to walk the streets of Philadelphia with my camera in hand, looking for interesting people to photograph. It's been a few weeks since my last trip to the city but I have several photos to share. More to come.

Look! Up in the Sky!

Manhattan, New York

The title is in reference to the old Superman TV program from the 1950s, "Look! Up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman!". 
For me, it should be, "Look where you're walking" because I slipped on ice and hurt my neck and head. I still like cold weather but I have to remember to be careful because I'm not Superman. :-)

Frozen

Langhorne, Pennsylvania                                           Core Creek Park frozen solid.

Without making any global warming jokes I'll just say it's really cold here and we have lots of beautiful snow. This is a photo that I took a few weeks ago when it was cold but not as cold as it is now.  I know some people don't like cold weather but I'm the opposite. I like the cold and I love snow but I can't stand hot weather. Yesterday I enjoyed a long walk when it was 15°F or -9°C,  but this morning it dropped down to -5°F or -21°C. Maybe someday the cold weather will bother me but for now it's something new and I like it.
